John,

This is most likely caused by a syntax error in Sysoc.inf (have you modified
it?). Extracting a new copy from XP CD should help.

Insert the Windows XP CD in the drive.
Click Start/Run and type CMD
In the Command Prompt, type this line:

expand X:\i386\sysoc.in_ -r c:\windows\inf

Where X:\ is your CD-ROM drive letter. The above command assumes Windows is
installed in C:\ drive. If not, change the drive letter / Path accordingly.

Example: expand H:\i386\sysoc.in_ -r g:\windows\inf
